March Challenge

The March Challenge is up at Scrapbookers Anonymous. This month it's all about flower power. You must use at least 7 flowers on your layout. You can mix up the kinds, but please do not use homemade flowers. The point of this challenge is to use up your existing flower stash! Here's what I came up with. First, I spent an evening just playing with my flower stash to create this assortment. That was so much fun, I left them on my desk for a week or two, loving the eye candy they provided!
But I finally needed to get it in gear and actually create a layout. I used 8 flowers on this page, but if you count each individual layer, I really used up 24 flowers from my stash! (trust me on this one and don't strain your eyes counting)
Design: Shimelle Laine's 4x6 Photo Love January Class over at Two Peas
Paper, Tags, Star Embellishment: Basic Grey Basics
Stamp: Hero Arts
Lettering: Thickers  


I hope you'll consider giving this challenge a try. You have until the end of the month and there is a great prize - new stuff from CHA! You can see that prize and what the rest of the design team came up with here.

  1. Now, that's a challenge I could certainly do with. Although I'm not so sure I could rise to it with the panache you have! Beautifully done.
